Beaglerush is the kind of guy I think is passably entertaining but some might find annoying, but he is very, very, VERY good at playing nu-Xcom. He has a habit of starting series which seem friggin great but then quitting before finishing, which is absolutely fine, and then not posting anything to yt for like a year+ at a time, which is also fine.
So he just started a new series with a custom mod that he made for Xcom 2 with the intent of making it more difficult and more tactical, while taking out some of the more RPG like elements and cheesier powercurve strategies. He basically just put in a bunch of ideas he thought might work and hasn’t balance tested it at all.
It has produced this episode, which ends with an entire platoon of Advent (like, literally 35 of them) shooting at his little 8-man team, and… well, if you like tactical stuff you owe it to yourself to watch this episode. You can skip the strategy layer stuff and some of the early setup turns. But my god I’ve never seen anything this nailbiting in a turnbased strategy game in my life.
